Road Rage on Oxford Street, London

This taxi driver tried to pull out and “barge” his way through some cyclists. While he probably gets away with this with cars, it is not a safe thing to do with cyclists.  In fact there was a young child in a trailer being pulled by one of the cylists.  A tricyclist (I think he was riding a pedicab) was so incensed that he dismounted and gave the taxi driver an earful.

It is not clear from the video but there was a lot of vehicular traffic on the street and so the taxi driver was not going anywhere fast - the bicycles were keeping up with (and overtaking) the cars, which were causing a traffic jam.
